RE: T-Mobile Home Internet WOW!

It was weird. but it was the same type and duration of failures across multiple devices. The only common denominator was the t-mobile internet. When I plugged into my cable company internet, it wouldn't happen. i did notice that my home internet connection had the web security stuff attached. it took several days to finally get that disabled. But it didn't change much.

RE: T-Mobile Home Internet WOW!

@philh Yeah, I used both wired and wireless. I do Information Security/Computer forensics, so all of my computers are as up-to-date as possible. This was about 10 different devices ranging from Amazon Firestick to a new Microsoft Surface Pro laptop.

RE: T-Mobile Home Internet WOW!

There are some caveats. The 4G/5G router is only meant for a fixed address, so not viable for traveling purposes. And T-Mobile indicated they are allowing just 10 home internet routers per tower to maintain high speed connections. That's what I was told over the phone, though don't know if it's accurate. At $60. month for unlimited 4G/5G wireless data, hard to beat in any case. Now I just have to find out how to setup an account to pay for it. :h In my experience, it is not what it should be at this point. I'm in San Francisco Bay Area and my average is only about 18 Mbps, so not very high. Whereas my cable company is 175+ Mbps. I thought it would be good for traveling, but like 1492 said it is designed for a fixed address. The T-Mobile forums are full of people saying that it may or may not work outside of your home area. I did NOT get a chance to test this part out. I also had issue with some sites and VPN. My work VPN was terrible while using it. It kept dying and would have to re-connect after about an hour. I also had login issue with Google and Facebook. They did NOT like the connection through T-mobile home internet. But my phone (also T-mobile) was fine - no issues. It also doesn't work well with streaming services. Amazon Prime was OK, Netflix OK, HBO Max was iffy, Disney+ was poor (slow). Discovery+ and Hulu would NOT stream connected to the T-mobile Home internet (it was a problem with the digital rights management {DRM} for T-mobile Home). A very serious blow for use on the road. I ended up canceling the T-mobile Home internet and staying with my cable company. Obviously, results will vary. If you have the option of running your current provider and T-Mobile, that would be a good way to test it out.

RE: US 395 in California

If you have kids with you, be sure to stop at Manzanar, Lava Tubes, Bodie, and Mono lake. You'll be surprised at their reactions. You will have to add a couple days to the trip because they won't want to leave as fast as you might think. The road to Bodie is NOT RV friendly. It is a dirt road that is not maintained much. I was just there a few months ago and it was almost 4wd only.

RE: CA 178 from Bakersfield to Lake Isabella

OK, thanks everyone. @SAR Tracker - yeah I saw that. I thought it would be a scenic route, but wasn't sure about the first couple of miles. I'm a little nervous with this new trailer (bigger than the others I've towed).

CA 178 from Bakersfield to Lake Isabella

Has anyone taken this route? Google streetview/Maps makes it look really tight and narrow. My concern would be with rock over hangs, etc. 32' TT '99 Suburban 2500 TV
